Many people have been working night and day (literally) to get this accomplished - we are not there yet and the Grand Re-opening will be held later. But we do have the Czech glass wall up, the Pearl and Semi-Precious wall is organized (mostly) and all of our seed beads are out. You can see 11/0's, 8/0's, 6/0's, and 15/0's in the seed beads. There are cubes in 1.5mm, 1.8mm, 3mm and 4mm sizes. Peanuts, Twins, Tilas, and of course the Czechmate Two-hole Lentils, Tiles, Daggers, Super Duos, and Bricks will be available as well as the regular Lentils, and Drops, and Bugles. The Hex beads in size 11, 8 and 15's are tubed and available and even some Triangle seed beads (I think size 11's).
Gosh. This seems like a lot and we still have so many other boxes to price and organize (including the new Rullas, Rizos, 8mm Rose Petals and new colors of Bricks and Two-hole Lentils). Okay, now I am really, really tired just reading this.
Here are photos of some of the class samples you can see. I am still waiting for project samples from some of our instructors before I can post the entire schedule but from what I've heard and seen so far - it's going to be so much fun.

She is one of our new instructors and will be teaching
something very similar.

|And all of the Czechmate Super Duo projects that you have seen on this blog over the last year.|
Our new building is located at 5509 Glenwood, just north of Shorty's - not quite across from the Hawks Stadium. Open this Saturday, August 24th from 11:30 to 5:00, and then closed until Wednesday, August 28th. We will be open 4 days a week (Wednesday thru Saturday) until we get everything arranged and return from a couple of buying trips.
Hope to see you soon. And, if you have been beading - would love to see your projects as well.
